Any of you that are afraid of the dark, do you know why? I used to be when I was a kid but I grew out of it.
My husband can not sleep without a nightlight by the side of the bed, and he sleeps with a pillow over his head which I find -odd-
I can't sleep unless it's absolutely pitch black so sometimes I either have the blanket over my head or I have an eye mask.
My Brother and Sister made me afraid of the dark; it started when I was very young, they would keep on scaring me in the dark or locking me in the basement and tell me that there is a ghost down there and it's coming after me.
But they did that over and over again, and if anyone found out that I was afraid of the dark who ever it was would do it if they had a chance. So to this day I am still afraid, I always think someone is going to grab me or chase me, or I'll see a ghost or something. I have tried to over come it but still no luck. I have turned off all the lights in the house and tried walking around in the dark to get over my fear; it might work if I do it often.
You should try that with your Husband, maybe twice go with him and after that, he has to do it by him self.
My husband always tells me to face my fear. I think he's right.
